What steps did you take to install, and what happened when it "went mad"?

Anytime you install a new theme or style, don't drag anything, use "Copy To" to make sure the entire folder makes the trip into your templates folder. Then, log into your admin panel, go to Styles Admin > Add. You should see the new style listed and that's where you install it. Changing things in Configuration without following these steps will result in a very ugly result, as you've seen. LOL
